Complex Commercial Litigation and Arbitration

Mindful of the costs and interruption to business that litigation brings, Goldberg Segalla aims to avoid it whenever possible by employing creative and results-oriented pre-suit negotiations and pre-answer motions to resolve disputes before they become full-fledged litigations.

However, when litigation becomes necessary, our seasoned litigators and trial attorneys utilize business-minded strategies designed to achieve our client’s desired outcome in the most effective and expeditious way possible. We draw on our decades of collective experience handling commercial disputes of all sizes for businesses, senior executives, investors, financial institutions, and nonprofits in complex matters that often span multiple jurisdictions.

As industry leaders and our peers attest when interviewed for the premier annual rankings of elite lawyers and law firms across the country — our innovative strategies and powerful advocacy help Goldberg Segalla clients resolve high-value commercial disputes while minimizing the risks that could significantly hinder their domestic and cross-border business objectives. The foresight and value we bring to every matter earns us continual placement in Chambers USA, Best Law Firms, Best Lawyers in America, and other leading law firm rankings.

National Litigation and ADR Experience

Our complex commercial litigators represent both plaintiffs and defendants through trial in state and federal courts nationwide, as well as in alternative dispute resolution forums and administrative tribunals. We frequently represent clients in commercial arbitrations before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and Society of Maritime Arbitrators (SMA), among other well-known arbitration and mediation entities.

Further emphasizing our command of highly nuanced ADR procedure, several Goldberg Segalla partners serve as mediators, neutrals, and factfinders in various jurisdictions. Examples include a member of the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution’s Panels of Distinguished Neutrals, ARIAS-U.S. Certified Arbitrators, and a Certified Federal Court Mediator.

Regardless of the forum, our litigators efficiently and proactively represent client interests in complex litigation matters and arbitration proceedings involving:

  • Breach of contract
  • Partnership dissolutions
  • Breach of fiduciary duties
  • Commercial fraud
  • Commercial defamation
  • Corporate governance
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Unfair competition

Highlighting our leadership in these areas, Goldberg Segalla’s attorneys are regularly asked to author and present on trends in resolving complex commercial disputes. We have been featured in publications such as Global Arbitration Review, Mealey’s International Arbitration Report, and DRI’s The Voice, and have spoken at national conferences put on by National Arbitration and Mediation, the American Bar Association, and other prominent business and legal organizations.
